Students from Millennia Gardens Elementary School in Orlando donated 1,000 heads of lettuce from their student hydroponics garden to SeaWorld's Manatee Rescue and Rehabilitation Program on Friday.
The students, ranging from third to fifth grades, spent a month working on the garden.
“We are so proud of the Millennia Gardens Elementary Eco Club," principle Anne Lynaugh said. "The teachers and students have put a lot of hard work into the hydroponics garden. It truly is an outdoor classroom where everyone can learn. The new partnership with SeaWorld is a wonderful and unexpected benefit that we hope will continue for years to come. It is our mission to lead our students to success with the support and involvement of families and the community.”
